Look around you. Every person you meet has been molded by an intertwining of genetic information and personal experience. Fragile X syndrome is a genetic disorder that is not widely understood. This book aims to help people of all ages understand that although individuals with fragile X syndrome do have certain challenges, these challenges do not define them. This book is a valuable tool for educators, siblings, parents, and children with fragile X syndrome.
